Blog Hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books and is an awesome way to for book bloggers to interact and find each other. Such a wonderful idea! There’s a new question every week that all the participating blogs have to answer. This week’s question is: “Highlight one book you received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can’t wait to dig into.”

Answer: Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. I got it Thursday for Around the World ARC Tours, and I’m really excited about it. I haven’t actually read Anna and the French Kiss yet. It’s been sitting on my shelf just waiting for me to get to it. I’ll probably end up loving this one so much, I’ll have to read it next. Here’s the cover and blurb.

Lola and the Boy Next Door
by Stephanie Perkins

Budding designer Lola Nolan doesn’t believe in fashion . . . she believes in costume. The more expressive the outfit — more sparkly, more fun, more wild — the better. But even though Lola’s style is outrageous, she’s a devoted daughter and friend with some big plans for the future. And everything is pretty perfect (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the dreaded Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighborhood.

When Cricket — a gifted inventor — steps out from his twin sister’s shadow and back into Lola’s life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.

I’m going to spend the next hour or so hopping around. Please take a moment to say hello and follow. I will drop by and return the favor.

  1. Hopping through. Lucky you for Lola! I read it a few weeks ago and adored it.My Hop

  2. New follower! I really love your blog, the owls are ridiculously cute :)I want to read your book pick too. It's on my never-ending list!Amanda WellingHippies, Beauty, and Books. Oh My!

  3. I haven't read anna, and actually don't even have it yet. I've been meaning to get it I just haven't but it's on my list.Have a good weekend

  4. I haven't read Anna yet either, Angelic. I guess I'll be reading Lola first since I have to have it in the mail on Wednesday. I'll probably love it and start reading Anna immediately.

  5. I’m seeing a lot of single answer responses with Twilight being by far the most popular choice. I really must analyze all the elements of that series that send girls ga-ga. Such studies are a part of the never-ending "code breaking” we males need to continuously execute to understand and relate with the fairer sex.I’ve cracked about 80% of the code. I will continue cracking the code until I reach 100% success. Then I’ll write a book for men and become a billionaire overnight.BUT I DIGRESS….I’ve got four different series I can read over and over again. Three of them were written by deceased authors and three of them are fantasy adventures.Follow me back to my blog at and find out how far off the beaten track I’ve gone with my favorite book series!Thank God it’s Follow Friday!Howard Sherman

  6. I loved this week’s question! I’ve made so many friends in the book blog world and am really impressed with so many blogs it was hard to hunker down and make a choice.But I did it! I’m shining the spotlight on a Jersey girl! Hop on over to my blog at to find out who she is and discover her amazing book blog.Howard Sherman, Implementor
